Groups of the Champions League 2019-20

The last matches of the qualification process are over and we now know the 32 teams that will compete this season in Europe’s most prestigious tournament.

The draw for the group phase of the Champions League 2019 – 20 was revealed and we know the teams that will compete against each other.

Three months after the Reds being crowned, the 65th edition of the Champions League begins once more. The preliminary stages that occurred during the summer were an introduction for the rest of the competition.

Each group possesses its own attributes and huge fixture, therefore in Group A, Paris Saint-Germain of Mbappé will face the Real Madrid of Zidane. In group B, the Bayern Munich of Lewandoski will face the Tottenham of Harry Kane, unlucky in the finals last season.

In group D we will assist to clash of the Juventus of CR7 against Atletico Madrid. Group F is composed of Barcelona, Dortmund, and Inter and also promises some action. The 32 teams will compete to raise the “Old Big Ears”, the name of the Champions League trophy.
